IrfanView Downloadable Software FAQs

How to properly install IrfanView or Plugins?

On a normal system, the installer will ask (at start) for ADMIN permissions. You should allow that if you want to install in the standard folder like “Program Files” and write basic program infos in system registry. If your system doesn’t ask for admin permissions, you should force admin start: right mouse button click on the EXE installer, a menu shows, choose “Run as administrator” and verify. Advanced users can take the ZIP version and unzip into a folder with write permissions (or redirect the INI file).


Do I need IrfanView PlugIns?

Probably not. All basic options/features/PlugIns are included in the standard IrfanView installation. PlugIns contains usually special file formats. If you need a special PlugIn, IrfanView will show you an error message and then you can/should install all other PlugIns.


How can I set IrfanView as my default viewer?

Start IrfanView, go to ‘Properties->Extensions’ and associate your types.
NOTE: in newer Windows versions, you must start IrfanView in ADMIN mode to change file associations. Use right mouse click on IrfanView, use the “Run as admin” menu and verify. If still not working, use the System Settings (or Control Panel): Apps => Set Standard Apps => Photo Viewer (Set default program).


How can I pan/scroll an image using mouse (right mouse button)?

You can scroll an image only if there are visible scrollbars. The right mouse button can be used for panning (if not set otherwise in “Properties->Viewing”): press and drag/move the right mouse button to pan.


How to print many files (batch print)?

In the Thumbnails window, you can select many images/files and use the menu “Print selected files as single images”.
